A charity that works to encourage employers to make their workplaces safer has been honoured at a House of Lords ceremony.
Safety Groups UK’s prestigious gold standard award was presented to the Suffolk and North Essex Occupational Safety Group (SNEOSG) – along with just eight other groups from throughout the country – during the event.
Next generation being targeted
It is the second year running that the charity has received the award, with the latest accolade coming on the back of a recently launched outreach scheme.
The new programme promotes good health and safety practice to secondary school students and other young people.
Natasha Wales, chairwoman of the SNEOSG, says achieving the back-to-back awards has provided everyone at the charity with a “massive” sense of achievement.
‘We’re proud of feedback’
Winning the second award, she says, shows that the group has not only maintained but built on the standards it achieved last year.
But she adds that the charity is even prouder of the positive feedback it receives from the businesses it helps to develop and implement workplace health and safety improvements.
